And the Oscar for best SEL film goes to...

Our list of this year's smartest flicks

At WINGS we're all about feedback and rewarding good performance! It's something we do daily in our programs and at our Soarporate office, so, we couldn't let Hollywood's biggest award show pass without adding our two-cents!

In preparation for the Academy Awards this Sunday, we asked our own Academy, our staff, to nominate films they felt displayed outstanding SEL. Here are WINGS' top 3 socially and emotionally smart films for both kids and adults. We think these films are extremely educational: full of lessons in social awareness, self-awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making, and self-management. Grab some popcorn, and enjoy! There's so much to be learned by watching others, on-screen and off.
