Thomas Sankara  Thomas Sankara was a Burkinabé pro-people revolutionary, pan-Africanist and President of Burkina Faso from 1983 to 1987.  At the age of just 33, Sankara became the President of the country that still retained its colonial name, Upper Volta, with the goal of promoting the wellbeing of the poorest people in the country by eliminating corruption and the dominance of the former French colonial power among other things.  He immediately launched one of the most ambitious programmes for social, ecological, gender and economic change ever attempted on the Africancontinent.  To symbolise this rebirth, he renamed the country from the French colonial Upper Volta to Burkina Faso ("Land of Upright Men"). His foreign policies were centred on anti-imperialism, with his government avoiding all foreign aid, pushing for debt reduction, nationalising all land and mineral wealth.  His policies were focused on preventing famine and land reform, prioritising education with a nationwide literacy campaign increasing the literacy rate from 13% in 1983 to 73% in 1987.  Planting over 10,000,000 trees to halt the growing desertification, doubling wheat production by redistributing land from feudal landlords to peasants, Sankara also called on every village to build a medical dispensary, and had over 350 communities build schools with their own labour. His commitment to women's rights led him to outlaw female genital mutilation and forced marriages while appointing women to high governmental positions and encouraging them to work outside the home and stay in school, even if pregnant.  The revolution and women's liberation go together. We do not talk of women's emancipation as an act of charity or because of a surge of human compassion. It is a basic necessity for the triumph of the revolution. Women hold up the other half of the sky.

What book are you currently reading? • I’m almost finished with The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein. I’m really loving it so far and it definitely has that creepy vibe that I wanted from it. There are flashbacks during the story which really helps to built the backstory and help me to see different sides of all of the characters. And Victor is so interesting! Like he’s crazy and the flashbacks really only confirm that. • I’m hoping to finish that tonight and then get started on the Phantom Wheel! • #octinbooks18: Books and candles #wildadventuresoct: Currently reading #bookstagramreadsoctober: Freaky Friday
Meet this awesome new author at the Minesing library until 7pm!!! #underthefloorboard #wendyranby  #readreadread
Sometimes you just have to make do! I left my anchor chart and post it notes that I had created at home, so I had to use my amazing drawing skills and make this on the fly! 🔎 We have started the word detective unit from Lucy Calkins and I am absolutely loving it! After we reviewed strategies good readers use, I had students focus during their independent reading time  thinking about which strategies they used when they came to tricky words. 🔎 Then each student shared which strategy they used. It was apparent to everyone that looking at the letters in the word was our go to strategy. 🔎 The next day we talked about how good readers use more than one strategy. And again they tried this out during independent reading time. The purple check marks show which strategies were used this time around. 🔎 My students immediately noticed ALL the different ways they could work on tricky words and were excited to share with their partners how they solved a tricky part. 🔎 Readers workshop has definitely taken some getting used to, but I have seen a tremendous amount of progress in my students and best of all they know themselves so well as readers! #readersworkshop #worddetectives #readreadread

Two hours into #8inboo for @25infive and 250 pages into IT. How is the readathon going for you?
Sharing this beauty and cutie today! Anyone else SO  glad it’s Friday?! 😂 The cutie being shared is my chubbo, Jupiter 🧡, he’s the kitty that made our house (and litter boxes) full! And the beauty is that gorgeous book cover 😍 I CANNOT WAIT to read Big Woods by @may_cobb - it sounds SO so good (see description below)! I finally got my copy and I’m itching to finish the other books ahead of it on my TBR list. I know you all will want to read it too - I looove all my fellow thriller freaks! 🖤 . . . . It's 1989 in the sleepy town of Longview, Texas, when ten-year-old Lucy disappears. Her parents, the police, and the community all brace for the worst, assuming her body will soon be found in Big Woods. Just like the other unsolved kidnappings. But then Lucy’s fourteen-year-old sister, Leah, starts having dreams about Lucy—dreams that reveal startling clues as to what happened. Leah begins her own investigation, and soon she meets a reclusive widow who may hold the key to finding Lucy . . . if only she can find the courage to come forward. Delving into the paranoia surrounding satanic cults in the 1980s, Big Woods is an emotionally wrought, propulsive thriller about the enormity of grief, the magical bond between sisters, and a small town's dark secrets. . . .  #mariaannreads #margareadaville #bookaholic #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookworld #bookdragon #unitedbookstagram #bookwormsunite #fortheloveofbooks #bookflatlay #bookphotography #becauseofreading #bookobsessed #bookaesthetic #instareads #bookpic #booklife #bookclub #goodreads #riotgrams #booknerd #lovetoread #bookworm #alwaysreading #readreadread #neverstopreading @goodreads @bookriot #thrillerbooks #thrillerreaders #bigwoods @midnightinkbooks

I’ve not been around much lately, I’ve had a lot going on which has meant my mental health has taken a nose dive massively too. I’ve not been reading much because I can’t concentrate on anything, so I picked this up because today in hopes i can read something.  Do you find that when your mental health isn’t doing great you don’t read as much as you normally do?  Also come tell me what books you’ve been loving lately?  #whatimreading #books #loverofbooks #avidreader #readreadread #ruthhogan #thewisdomofsallyredshoes #bookporn #photosofbooks

...”Even though from the outside it may have seemed like an uninhabited place for years, something made me think that in really things inside aren’t as they appear outside. In fact, looking carefully at the room, I noticed that it was not particularly dirty for a long time inhabited place. I continued my search elsewhere, going down a flight of steps until I arrived in a huge room full of history and knowledge: the library.” 📚📕📗Good morning and Happy Friday! 📙📖🔎 . . . . . . . . . #abandonedhouse #abandoned_excellence  #country_features #exploring_shotz  #ethereal_moods  #rsa_rural #abandon_seekers #antique #vintagehome  #heart_imprint #discarded_butnot_forgotten  #renegade_abandoned  #sombrexplore #abandoned_addiction #exploreeverything  #moodygrams  #library #the_mirror_of_our_souls  #booktography  #totalbooknerd #readreadread  #epicreads #booksbooksbooks  #abandonedplaces  #abandonedafterdark  #renegade_rural #everything_imaginable  #ilovetoread #allbeauty_addiction

Current read, current snacks (shhh our tomato plant doesn’t know it’s October)! Starting Bitter Orange by Claire Fuller today for #8inboo, although I’m not timing my reading because that stresses me out - but aiming for 200 pages instead! {@tin_house #partner} I’m about four chapters in and so far there’s sooo much creepy foreshadowing and I love it. • If you’re readathoning - what book are you starting with? • • • #bookgeek #booknerd #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #allthebooks #fiction #bookish #booksbooksbooks #bookaholic #ilovebooks #readersofinstagram #readinglife #readmore #alwaysreading #bookworm #amreading #readreadread #bitterorange #clairefuller
🔥🐲 Il 20 novembre esce grazie a #mondadori Fuoco e Sangue, nuovo libro (primo di due) di #georgerrmartin che ripercorre le vicende della famiglia Targaryen secoli prima delle vicende di Asoiaf. Per quanto io sia veramente interessata a questo libro non posso fare a meno di pensare che avrei preferito avere tra le mani Winds of winter...me ne rendo conto, ormai questa è una lamentela banale, ma per chi come me ha iniziato questa saga tanti tanti anni fa, la pubblicazione degli ultimi libri continuare a essere un tasto dolente 😂 ➖➖➖ 🔥🐲 Fire & Blood, last George R. R. Martin's book will be released next month. This book and the following will retrace the Targaryen's story centuries before the events of Asoiaf. I'm really curious about it but I admit...I wanted Winds of winter! I know, this is a common compliant but for those like me who have started this saga years and years ago the release of the last books is a sore subject 😂 ➖➖➖ #grimdragon there will be blood #booklover #fantasybooks #fantasyseries #bookworm #morebooks #gameofthrones #weekendreads #readreadread #bookbookbook
“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real.”― Nora Ephron . . 👆That is yet another one of my favorite quotes on reading. Thank God it's Friday finally! I can't wait to make contact with someone else's imagination after a week that was all too real 😂😂 I am going to start with The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert, it's such a gorgeous book, I hope the story is as good as well. But first, I need to get over with Friday! Anybody has any fun plans for the weekend? . . #mustlovebooks #booksoutside #readreadread #booktimistic #cloudscapes #candyskies #takeyourbookoutdoors
