Using Whole Caseload Projects to Target Individual Goals

One way to keep things fun and engaging in the speech room is to adopt a project-based learning mindset. In this case, project is a loose term to describe any ongoing, beginning/middle/end, multi-step work. This can be more science minded, purely crafty, designed-based, or kinesthetic.
