The paper suggests that a teacher define a romance novel in order to allow the students to formulate their own opinions of how well "Wuthering Heights" conforms to this definition.

From the Paper:

"Finding a context into which most modern seventh-grade students can place this story can be difficult. Boys of this age tend to dismiss "romances" or "romantic" stories. Girls of this age are attracted to books such as The Babysitter's Club series and Young Adult genre novels that occasionally have romantic elements; therefore, they are not as quick, in general, to dismiss such stories. However, they frequently perceive the romance novel as being restricted to the format used by the genre romance novel publishers, such as Silhouette or Harlequin."
