This paper explores how Kolb’s experiential learning cycle can be used as a way of structuring seminars in English literature in order to bring students towards a greater understanding of literary texts. Using the example of teaching Lord Byron’s poem ‘The Island’, it explains how both students’ understanding of a specific text and their core skills can be developed through a series of structured activities that relate to specific stages of the learning cycle.
