Hi Jordan, You are off to a good start. I think you could go farther with your needs analysis. Take a look at Claire's and Dwayne's needs analyses to see two different approaches drawn from the reading. Do your objectives map to the outcomes you initially set out? Do these objectives measure intellectual, verbal, cognitive, attitudinal, or motor skills? Let me know if you have any questions about this feedback.

I think your topic is very interesting and important, especially in today's educational climate. Differentiation is important to ensuring our students have a wide variety of content and instructional tools to foster critical thinking and higher order thinking skills.
As for your lesson plan thus far, I think your learning outcomes and instructional objectives are clear and ultimately attainable considering the nature of the lesson. Your objectives touch upon some essential components to help a teacher fully understand how to differentiate classroom instruction in a social studies classroom (particularly multiple intelligence theory). I like how your objectives move from basic skills (such as identifying what differentiation is) to actually having your intended audience show strategies related to differentiation.
I am excited to see what your task analysis and curriculum map will look like as you move forward with the mini-course.
