How do you make sure your thesis statement or introduction paragraph isn't too long or too short?

I want to improve my thesis statement or introduction paragraph in my essay---it's too short. But if I write more detailedly, I would be writing body paragraphs made into one. Is there a way to control the length of my thesis statement? If you could, please also add a note of how to write a conclusion paragraph. I mean, you can't just copy paste the same thing for both, right?

Pls help asap, my essay is due soon.

I'm assuming your essay is a response question based on a given statement. For an introductory paragraph, you should ideally state your stand (agree/disagree with the question) first, then define the key terms in the given statement. You can then continue to the body of your essay.

A thesis statement is usually written as a summary for what you will be writing about, it is normally no more than one sentence long.

In a conclusion, you mainly restate the poithat that were covered earlier. It's much like a summary. Remember not to add any new ideas here, though.

Hope this helps :) Not sure if this is the essay style America uses, I'm from Singapore.
