This purpose of study is to develop an instructional model that can be used to overcome learning problems of commercial graphic design drafting course. The model consists of learning materials, study guide, lecture manual, assignment and practice for the learner learning process. This research used the research and development model of Borg, Gall, and Gall (3) which adapt the systematic Design of Instruction model of Dick, Carey, and Carey (11). As for the results of the research showed that There was significant difference between pre-test score (X=64.4) and pos-test score (X=78.80). T test score indicates that the difference between pre and posttest significantly differ due to student improvement in doing their task and assignments.
