Are you a teacher? Have you ever thought of using Stuart McLean's stories in the classroom? For years we've received feedback from Vinyl Cafe listeners asking for ideas of ways they can use the Dave and Morley stories in the classroom. Finally we've decided to do something about it! What can we say...we may not be fast, but we're slow.

One of our favourite teachers - Andrew McFadyen - has put together this comprehensive collection of lesson plans based on Stuart's stories. The guide includes the original Dave and Morley stories as well as related activities, reading assignments, discussion topics, and project ideas. Suitable for grades 6-10.

This digital album has all the stories that appear in the book. purchase the book for the lesson plans and download this digital companion album so you can play the stories in your classroom.

This album is a Zunior-Only release.

"The Vinyl Cafe is probably the CBC's, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, most successful weekend show. Its American counterpart would be Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and the funny stories the genial host of the Vinyl Cafe, Stuart McLean, tells are sort of like the News From Lake Wobegon without the politics, religion, and occasional high-horse. As a show, the Vinyl Cafe, when live, is a one-hour set of eclectic music by very different musicians and a story by Stuart McLean about Dave, the owner of a used record store called the Vinyl Cafe, his wife, Morley, their two kids and their neighbors." - The Serious Comedy Site
