Can enthalpy and temperature be related?

Absolutely. You will have a better understanding of this relationship as the course progresses.

When the temperature is greater, there is more heat and therefore more energy. I think that this would cause enthalpy to also increase.

I agree with Renee's assumption. In the book in section 8.8, it says that at constant pressure, and with no nonexpansion work ΔH = q. q represents heat, which can be increased by increasing the temperature. So with from equation, we see that with increased temperature, ΔH (enthalpy) will increase as well.

Today in class we learned that enthalpy is related to heat. Given that temperture is defined as the average kinetic energy of particles, this definition does not make it hard to understand why the two may be correlated.
