Why did Gibbs Make this cycle?

Gibbs made this cycle to help students with their course work when they are doing assignments which require reflective writing. The aim of Gibbs cycle is to link the practice to the theory, help self-improvement and to explore new ideas and approaches towards things.

Why I chose this cycle

I chose this cycle because when answering each section of the in reflective writing it gives you a good understanding on what you need to include when using the cycle for reflective writing . This cycle will also help me because it has a clear structure to work from and is easy to understand.
