1.  Fill out the application form N400 either through mailing in the paper form, or online at https://www.uscis.gov/n-400

Read the instructions at that website as to how to fill it in.  Submit the required documentation (also listed on the website above).

2.  She will receive a notice for her biometrics appointment where she will be fingerprinted, photographed, and submit an electronic signature.

3.  Her info will be submitted for background and name checking.

4.  Later on, she will receive an appointment for her interview where she will answer any questions the IO has based on her application/documentation as well as take the civics test.  You will not be permitted inside the interview room with her, unless the IO wishes to speak to you as well (unlikely, but it has happened).

5.  If approved for Naturalization, she will receive a letter for her Oath ceremony (you are able to attend this, generally).

She is expected to know at least basic English (enough to answer questions, have a conversation, etc.)

She will complete the Civics Test (and answer at least 6 questions correctly out of a random 10 asked by the Immigration Officer).

She will be expected to read one sentence in English (the sentence is given to her by the IO).

She will be expected to write one sentence in English (the sentence will be dictated to her by the IO).

She will answer questions based on whatever she's put down on her application.  She may be asked questions about her immigration history (ie. on what sort of visa she entered the country), if she has traveled, perhaps questions about you or your marriage (to confirm her initial GC was properly approved) etc. to confirm the info on her application.
