Industry 4.0 has challenged 21st-century society through future employment and workforce trends shifting. Decision-making is one of the thinking skills urgently needed to achieve job success in this disruptive era. As the skills in choosing the best solution to the socio-scientific issues (SSI), decision-making is closely associated with scientific literacy. Indeed, Indonesia has committed to developing decision-making skills implicitly by emphasizing scientific literacy in the 2013 Curriculum. However, these efforts have not met the expectations. The present study aims to describe the development strategy of decision-making skills in the context of SSI in the junior high school 2013 Curriculum. Various constructs of decision-making were reviewed to formulate the appropriate framework. Delivering the SSI articles in the initial stage of instruction and stimulating students to choose the SSI’s best solution through four cognitive processes guided by students’ worksheets can be established as the decision-making strategy. As the explicit scaffold in the worksheets, the cognitive processes include identifying the SSI, formulating alternative solutions, evaluating alternative solutions, and making decisions.
