Would keeping in mind, and memorising evidence for 2-3 themes (both 'resonances' and 'dissonances') be sufficient? And is it better to write integrating or alternating paragraphs when writing the comparative essay? Though my teacher suggested an integrated approach, I find writing alternating paragraphs easier; what should I do and how do I study for this Module?

Inherently, every similarity in a text is also a difference whether it be through the mode of conveyance, context, perspective etc. So what I would do is prepare paragraphs on each theme evenly split between each of the compared texts that shows some connection and write whether its a resonance or dissonance, but if the question mandates for you to switch your perspective make sure these prepared paragraph's points are flexible enough to change on the spot.
E.g. Daoud builds upon Camus' metafictive representation of racial profiling by adding a new lens to the issue.

Yea I think memorising 2-3 themes is sufficient, in terms of resonances and dissonances you can argue resonances as themes and dissonances as their portrayal of those themes/mode of the texts. If you prefer alternating then do alternating, either way works and I've seen people do very well with either.
