This research investigates teachers’ beliefs and practices about EFL writing. The teachers of EFL writing become potential asset to promote holistic teaching. Teachers of EFL writing are challenged to facilitate meaningful writing class to provide holistic learning. Under the principal theory of writing instruction, the data were analyzed to identify teachers’ orientations in teaching writing. The data reveal that the teachers’ beliefs about writing are writing as formal system, cognitive process, social activity, content-focused form, creative expression, and text function orientation. The beliefs, then, influence the practices since the teachers employ activities reflecting the diverse beliefs. The practices direct to holistic teaching since it meets the students’ spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs. Through the empirical evidence of this research, we argue that the exploration on teachers’ beliefs and practices can be inspiration for other EFL practitioners in building classroom atmosphere leading to millennial holistic teaching in EFL writing.
