so can you guys give me a few examples of where these scales are used in solos
C harmonic minor
G minor pentatonic
A ionian
D mixolydian
G aeolian
A phrygian
D dorian

To be honest you'd be better off just starting with the major scale and learning other scales by how they relate to it...you won't get any benefit from learning a few random scale patterns.

Also, try not to approach scales in specific keys as individual things, they're not...a scale is a pattern of intervals that you can apply to any root note. That means the same scale in different keys will still sound "the same", which one you use just depends on the key the rest of your music is in.

The first thing to do is learn the notes on the fretboard, the next step before learning anything else is to learn the major scale and it's intervals, understand how you can play that scale all over the fretboard and understand how the scale relates to the chord progression of the major scale.

G Minor Pentatonic: SRV's "Texas Flood"
D Mixolydian: Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" (first solo/interlude)
A Ionian: Blink 182's "The Rock Show"

For the record, this is a ridiculous assignment; your teacher should teach you these things.

Yeah, this looks like a trick assignment or something.
