DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-4739-7.ch005
The national call to increase student participation in CS is widely adopted, but there is limited research that examines English learners (EL) on the agenda for K-12 CS education. This chapter contributes to the literature by analyzing the landscape of EL in computer science and highlighting the linguistic challenges that EL students experience in CS. By understanding significant themes that emerge from these challenges, we conclude with recommendations on how to support EL and future research and strategies for creating a more equitable playing field in CS education for English learners.
