well, it is not easy to make those modes sound like they should. You can also use standard progressions:

Amaj Amaj Dmaj Emaj
A Ionian A Ionian D Lydian E Mixolydian

When doing a chord progression in the specific mode to really make it sound like the mode, you wanna pick those strong chords (I,IV,V)
of course you can use slash chords, so you can keep the same mode:

Ionian prog: (all chords are maj)(use A Ionian)

A E/A D/A E/A

Dorian prog:(use A dorian)

G/A D/A C/A D/A

another cool A dorian prog:
Am7 D9
(very Santana-like chord prog)

Phrygian prog: (A phrygian)

C/A F/A Bb/A F/A

Lydian prog (use A Lydian)

A H/A E/A H/A

Mixolydian (wonder what? - A mixolydian)

G/A D/A A A(7)

Aeolian: (A aeolian)

C/A F/A G/A F/A

Locrian: (A locrian)

Bb/A Eb/A F/A Ab/A

These are just some examples, you should record them and then play the modes over the certain progression.
Another idea is the "pitch-axis-system" mostly used by Joe Satriani
He basically uses 1 tonal centre and then just picks out the chords from each mode to form a chord progression. So He stays for example in A, but changes from A mixo to Alydian to A dorian...etc.

So the chords for a tonal centre of A for example:

A Lydian:

Amaj7#11, B/A, Amaj7/13, Amaj9,Chords from the Emajor scale

Aeolian:
Csus4, Fmaj7/A, chords from the Cmajor scale

Locrian:
A0, Bb/A,Eb/A, Gharmonic minor

Mixolydian:
A7,Asus13, Asus, chords from D major

if you use these chords over the specified mode you will see that they will with with their structure and intervals to the structure of the different modes.

Hope i could help

O god. Ive spoke about this before. You can express modes with just a A note.

Im amazed at how many pro musicians dont realize the pentatonic is repeated 3 times in a scale. ie: the I IV and V.

// Sorry peoples. Im in a s h i t mood

i know there are 3 major pentatonics in the major scale... that has nothing to do with modal sounds though.
