Which suggests a solution.
Whenever possible include a TUTORIALS section with pointers to such.

Which suggests another solution.
Establish  man(8)  as the section for TUTORIALS.

Which suggests another solution.
Have linux/unix/bsd courses create "homeworK" such as:

        Write a tutorial on basic and advanced uses for the  cp ,  mv  and
         ln  commands.  Teamwork is encouraged.

        Finding an existing one on the internet is acceptable,
        especially if you can get the author's permission to submit it to
        the  man pages  collection as a  man(8)  entry.

        If one already exists, see if you can find improvements.

        Extra credit.  The same for  rm .
        Extra-extra credit.  The same for  ed .
