Lift a line is a strategy that shows students how to choose an interesting sentence and use it as a first line for a new entry.
Students choose an interesting sentence from their own writing or from their reading to recopy onto a blank page. This lifted line or sentence becomes the first line of a new entry. This strategy can open the door to new ideas and improve fluency.
