My first question is about including a blueprint in the essay (by blueprint I mean a brief summary of the points which are going to be discussed in the body. In other words, a combination of key words of topic sentences). Is including a blueprint in the introduction recommended since I have read in some IELTS books that including it in the introduction makes an essay boring. It was mentioned, in those books, that instead of presenting the point in the introduction and then extending it in the body, it is best to remove those points from the introduction and only discuss them in the body. I would really appreciate it if you shared your opinion on this with me.
