A good essay introduction should start by stating the essay’s overarching opinion or argument. It should then briefly summarise the whole essay by using not more than one or two sentences to explain each major, relevant point in turn. These should all be points that strengthen and contribute to your argument. You can also list the topics discussed in the essay.
