Can you define what makes a good teacher?
Fareed Zakaria: What do you think makes a good teacher?
I have had many IELTS teachers asking such questions to me in the past. The latter approach you mentioned is less direct. While this is a good approach for many academic essays and may draw the attention of the reader, it is unnecessary for IELTS. An IELTS introduction should serve two purposes, as you said, to introduce the essay question and present your position. Anything more is unnecessary. This is a short academic essay with a strict time limit. The main bulk of the points awarded in IELTS writing task 2 come from the body paragraphs so extending the introduction further is a waste of time and words.
