Bracketing is a setting that will take a photo "underexposed", properly exposed and "overexposed". I put those in quotes because that is based on what the metering system on the camera thinks is properly exposed.
The idea is that you are taking a shot that has lots of different light; bright areas, and dark areas. So you "bracket" shots under and over and then merge them together in an editor and try to get everything properly exposed.
Some cameras will do more than one under and over, and some are more adjustable on how much exposure compensation it uses on each.
